My parents divorced when I was 3 and my Mom and I moved from Texas, back to Tennessee. I never saw nor heard from my Dad again until the day he died. I received a telephone call and the caller said, 'hi, is this Linda? And then, he said, I am your brother and our Dad just died.' I never knew I had a brother and also a sister, who died when she was 32. But by this time, my Mom had died and I couldn't ask for information on my Dad.
Suffice it say, we met and kept in touch for a long time, and then all of a sudden, he vanished out of sight, and try as I might, I couldn't locate him.
So, I didn't tell you this for pity, just to let you know that your Dad is important in your life, and be sure and tell him today if possible.
I do wish my Jim a Happy Father's Day, because he was and is a very good Dad to our three children. They love him and show it all the time.
I am very happy to say that my two daughters have wonderful husbands and Dads, and my son is a wonderful Father to his children too! I am proud of all of them.
Church this morning, but Jim doesn't feel well enough to go. His procedure is due this coming Wednesday, so maybe after that, he will have less pain and can do more.
